Jay Leno

I'm Done With Television

... For Good

2/10/2014 8:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF



Don't expect Jay Leno to hijack "The Tonight Show" back from Jimmy Fallon ... because the ex late-night host swears he's done with TV ... FOREVER.

Jay was in West Palm Beach Florida -- but not to start his retirement.   Leno was there to perform stand-up comedy just two days after his exit from "The Tonight Show."


Jay's answer may come as a surprise ... especially since he left the show in 2010 ... then famously wrangled it back from Conan O'Brien.

So, we gotta ask ...

When Fallon tanks in the ratings on Tonight, as he surely will since he is a clown, not an interviewer, NBC the Nothing But Crapola network will kick themselves for getting rid of Jay. Leno was the best host of Tonight aside from Johnny Carson, who was the best. Conan and Fallon are both clowns. Now all know why NBC has the lowest ratings on television, stupid management that would not know they had something gfood till they lost it, which they did. Fallon also will not be able to command the high priced commercials that Leno did because he will not be number one in ratings as Leno was. Maybe when NBC is hit harder in their bottom line, they will wise up. BUT you can't fix stupid.

Nothing is what it seems when it comes to TV. I think Jay will land some outstanding gig somewhere. Don't ever count him down for the count. I think he has a few more punches to deliver for sure........ ;O)

Got to see him up close from the second row at a Vegas show. He really packs the markup on so all his wrinkles do not show. The Tonight show really aged him. Maybe he need to retire and enjoy his classic cars hobby.

He didn't "wrangle it back" from Conan. Conan couldn't pull in the audience so NBC asked Leno to return. Stop putting bull**** out there.
